As part of June Dairy Month celebrations, Gov. Tony Evers made a 2 p.m. June 2 visit to the Hill Valley Dairy retail store at 510 Broad St. in Lake Geneva.

Recently, Hill Valley Dairy received $10,000 in grant funding from the Main Street Bounceback Grant Program.

The Main Street Bounceback Grant Program was first announced in April 2021 and since then more than 4,500 small businesses and nonprofits across all 72 Wisconsin counties have been approved for $10,000 grants to help them move or expand into vacant commercial spaces.

“From barbershops to candy stores and from physical therapists to local economic development groups, the businesses and organizations that have received Main Street Bounceback grants vary widely,” said Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. “But what we’re hearing from all of the communities where these businesses are opening is the send of excitement that they bring. Whether it’s a new restaurant, a hair salon or an accounting business, there’s a feeling that there are new reasons to come to our downtowns and spend a little more time there.”
